Rage Toad Lunker

Recommended Posts

Me and my buddy Eric decided on a quick afternoon sesh today.. My usual spot got shot out when they sprayed the vegetation so after a morning of scouting on google earth, I found what looked to be a decent spot well off the beaten path.. It was a 3 mile paddle in.. Glad we went though.. We kept bent rods the whole way up the canal on rage toads and pop frogz, mostly dinks, but there were several 2-3lbers in the mix and we even got a decent double up..

We paddled as far as we could get and beached the yaks and it was another mile walk or so to the piece of real estate I was scoping out on the satelitte imagery this morning.. We didn't set the world on fire but I did manage my biggest bass to date.. No scale or tape, I was guessing maybe 8lbs or so.. Eric landed a decent one but he had one as big or bigger than mine shake off on the rage toad.. We didn't kill em but it was still a blast and I finally managed to stick a decent one..

Any dominant gators follow you on the Yaks down the canal as you were slaying  HAWGS?  Congrats on area you scoped, gotta love Google Earth and honey holes!

We only saw a few here, 6-8 footers, nothing to worry about.. I usually fish the stick marsh and it's full of big gators.. at any given time you'll have 6 or more in your field of vision.. Was going down a tight canal about a month ago and had one come off the bank right across the nose of the yak.. had he jumped off the bank a second or two later he would have been in my lap

I was thinking about gators when I looked at the pics of you and your buddy standing on the bank.  That's a nice hawg you got there!  It sounds like a great day of fishing and exploring.
